An ideal holiday, birthday or anniversary gift for people you care about
While the term has apparently been around for awhile, I just learned about it from a blog reader. After a quick internet search, I found this video about Raul, who’s driving his own weapon of mass instruction around Argentina.
In Argentina, a local artist has transformed an old ford Falcon into a roving library. He weaves through the streets of Buenos Aires and the rest of the country, offering free books to passers-by in the hopes of sparking the country’s appetite for literature.
Like Raul, we’re trying to do our part to spark the world’s interest in a different topic — the simple concept of using their food choices to achieve vibrant health, lower the cost of health care, nurture our fragile environment, feed the starving masses, conserve our fossil fuels and end the needless suffering of billions of food animals around the world.
We would love to see our book become the “go-to book” for vegetarians and vegans around the world to give to their meat-eating friends and families. While it will never replace the incomparable books by the likes of Dr. T. Colin Campbell and Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, we think our book makes an ideal weapon of mass instruction gift for three reasons:
- It is an easy read. A straightforward, highly referenced “big picture” that can be easily read and understood by the average 8th grader in one afternoon.
- Not just about our health. While we begin with health, we devote separate chapters to the other four categories of compelling reasons for adding more plants to one’s diet: environment, energy, world hunger and animal suffering.
- It is not an “all or nothing” proposition. While we explain and recommend the optimal diet (100% plant-based), we encourage everyone to start “making a difference” by simply adding as much whole plant-based foods to their diet as they possibly can.
As for the video, not sure if any of Raul’s books deal with healthy eating, but it’s interesting nevertheless. Anyone know how I can get a few of our books on that truck? Guess we’ll have to wait until BenBella Books publishes the Spanish version.
